Artificial Turf Around the Pool: The Crystal-Clear Choice for Swimming Areas
Summer is continuing to heat up and it’s the perfect opportunity to revamp your swimming pool for the season. The usual pool check includes cleaning up the water, filter systems and plugs. Once you’ve checked these off, it’s time to pay attention to the material surrounding the area. Is it safe and beautiful enough for the endless fun to come? If you still have natural grass, the answer is probably no. Here’s why you should consider artificial turf around your pool area, courtesy of Heavenly Greens!
Benefits of Artificial Grass for Pool Surrounds
Since it’s not alive, synthetic grass is impervious to water. Furthermore, no matter how much pool spillover soaks into its turf, there’s no risk of it getting sick or drowning. It’ll stay pristine and green throughout the year and always ready for any pool party you’re planning! Here are other ways artificial turf beats real grass as a pool surround material:
- It drains pool water efficiently
Puddles don’t form on top of synthetic grass thanks to its proprietary drainage. It automatically takes care of excess moisture, be it pool water overflow, rain or sticky spillage, with its perforated backing. This feature eliminates the need to invest in drains, which is the case when you choose to pave your poolside areas.
- No more slipping and sliding every time you get out of the pool
Unlike tiles and marble paving, top-quality turf around your pool will not get slippery when you walk over it with wet feet. This capability makes it an excellent choice for upping your poolside area’s safety. The synthetic turf’s soft, padded grass blades also absorb impact in case of falls.
- Completely free of mud and debris
Since installing artificial turf covers the ground completely, there’s no chance of dirt, grass clippings and mud getting into your pool water. This mud-free quality will help you keep your pool cleaner.
- Much more durable than natural grass
The best artificial grass around your pool won’t break under constant use, high foot traffic and heavy equipment, so invite as many friends over as you want to enjoy your pool! Areas that receive high foot traffic on your pool deck may get matted over time, but don’t worry. It’s nothing a proper brushing can’t fix.
- Almost completely resistant to harsh weather
Synthetic turf can also weather the elements without showing signs of wear and tear. If it rains or floods, just wait for the waters to recede and give the turf a good hosing down to clean it up. If there is frost, just let your turf artificial grass be. Wait for spring to thaw out the ground, rinse the general area to get rid of debris buildup and the grass around your pool will look good as new!
- Hassle-free maintenance
It doesn’t take much to keep synthetic turf in top condition. Just remove waste from its surface, hose it down occasionally and brush it to keep its grass blades upright. Feel free to wash it with a soap and water solution to get rid of lingering smells. Don’t worry, since this step won’t damage the turf or cause discoloration.
